This guide explains how to convert video so that it can be played on PS3 using Avidemux. I had a bunch of videos (documentaries) that were in xvid (.avi) format. When I would play them on my PS3, some would play very choppy with distorted sound. Others would play with no sound at all. I managed to figure out a way to convert the videos so that they could be played on PS3.
Use the following steps to convert the video to a .mp4 file that will be playable on your PS3…
- Install Avidemux (this is available for both Windows and Linux).
- Open the file which you would like to convert in Avidemux.
- Select the following…
Video: MPEG-4 ASP (lavc)
Audio: AAC (FAAC)
- Click “Save” and save the file as a .mp4 file.
The newly created .mp4 file will be playable on your PS3.
